Jerry's Take On .... Jamie Goodwin

As the Colts stacked their offseason roster for a wide open competition that should improve their returns results on special teams, they included undrafted free agent Jamie Goodwin in the mix. Jerry Langton fills you in on this Colts rookie.

Jamie Goodwin, WR
Northern Iowa

Numbers: 5010/188 pounds/4.42-forty speed

2005 stats: 27-576-4 receiving/1-9-0 rushing/30-661-0 kick returns/1 assisted tackle

The player: On his Myspace page, Goodwin claims he was timed at 4.22 in the forty. Although I can't confirm that, he certainly looks very, very fast to me. A track star at Akron, he transferred to Northern Iowa to play football and although he was obviously raw, he did a great job stretching the field as a receiver and burning corners on post and streak routes. Although he has much to learn about the position and the game, Goodwin has such rare athletic ability that his shortcomings can be overlooked as he develops.

How he fits: Goodwin will be thrown into the fray amongst the other receiving and return prospects. He may be incredibly raw, but he has such rare tools and so little football experience that it wouldn't surprise me if the Colts keep him around for a while even if he doesn't win a job outright.

Reminds me of: Former Patriots WR Bethel Johnson, who was just traded to the Saints
